JCC Elaine Frank Apachi Day Camp – Lake Zurich, IL

The Best Place Under the Sun!

Apachi Day Camps offer a breathtaking array of activities, field trips and special days. We can go old school with songs, swimming, theater and arts and crafts. We can go new school with rock climbing, yoga and STEM.

We go where our campers can discover new experiences in a safe environment giving them the freedom to explore who they really are, play in a bully-free zone, and find out what it means to be a friend…

And we always go to a place where campers are embraced by the spirit and values of our Jewish community.

Shabbat Fridays bring campers a little closer together as they celebrate Apachi style. Maccabi games give our campers the chance to compete in this uniquely Jewish sporting event. An Israeli Shuk can turn a camp into Jerusalem.

*We welcome transgender, intersex, non-binary and gender-non conforming campers
